Animals have various nutritional requirements depending on their age, breed and health status. Decisions regarding your pet’s nutrition should not be made without first consulting a veterinarian.
Geriatric animals have significantly different requirements than young growing puppies or kittens. Animals with diabetes or kidney disease also have different requirements.
Your vet will be able to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s choice of diet given their age, breed and health status. A proper diet will help your prolong your pet’s life.
Dermatology refers to the study of the skin. Skin disease is a frequently observed problem in dogs and cats. Diagnosing a skin problem in your pet may simply require an examination by a veterinarian; however, most skin diseases or problems require additional steps to accurately obtain a diagnosis. Additional diagnostic procedures may include blood work, urinalysis, skin scraping, biopsies, etc.
The cause of skin problems range from hormonal disorders to the common flea. You should book an appointment for your animal if you notice any excessive itchy behavior, loss of hair, and / or the presence of scabs or scale on the skin.
Our pets suffer from allergies just as we do. Through diagnostic blood tests we can determine your pet’s veterinary allergies and treat the symptoms so that they can enjoy life even more. We will discuss the various alternatives with you and recommend a safe, long-term solution. If you see your pet scratching, chewing or licking an area constantly, call for an appointment before that area becomes infected or needs expensive treatment. Prevention is always the best cure for allergies.
We offer behavior consultation for your pet:
- Aggressive behavior
- House Soiling/Marking behavior
- Separation Anxiety
- Puppy Socialization and Training.
It is the most frequently diagnosed health problem in pets. Common signs of oral disease include tartar buildup, red and swollen gums, bad breath, changes in eating or chewing habits, pawing at the face and generalized depression.
A vet should evaluate your pet’s dental health at least once a year. We recommend this because bacteria and food debris accumulates around a pet’s teeth and, if left unchecked, will lead to deterioration of the soft tissue and bone surrounding the teeth. This decay results in irreversible periodontal disease and even tooth loss.
There are other reasons why you should pay close attention to your pet’s dental health. Dental disease can affect other organs in the body: bacteria in the mouth can get into the blood stream and may cause serious kidney infections, liver disease, lung disease, and heart valve disease. Oral disease can also indicate that another disease process is occurring elsewhere in a pet’s body. A thorough physical exam combined with appropriate laboratory work can determine if this is the case.
We can recommend and demonstrate preventative measures you can begin at home. Our preventative program emphasizes and explains how you can avoid costly dental procedures with your pet in the future.
Our on-site Digital X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.

Homeopathy is a form of complementary medicine which uses remedies derived from plants, animals and minerals to stimulate the body’s own healing response. Veterinary homeopathy is becoming more popular and offers a safe alternative to conventional treatment for all species of animals. Remedies can be taken along side conventional medicine with no detrimental effects.
Most complaints can be treated with homeopathy and homeopathy can be used to improve recovery from surgery, speeding an animal’s return to full vitality no matter what the cause of the initial complaint. Conditions such as allergies, skin conditions, digestive complaints, arthritis and organ dysfunction (such as kidney, heart or liver disease) have been successfully treated with homeopathy. Behavioural disorders such as aggression, phobias and inappropriate soiling can also be treated homeopathically.
The initial homeopathic appointment includes a consultation which lasts from 40 minutes to an hour. During this time information will be gathered about your pet and the presenting complaint and medical history. You will also be asked relevant questions about your pet in general such as sleeping patterns, appetite, thirst and temperament. Remedies will then be prescribed along with recommendations for supplements, change in diet and where indicated conventional treatments. Follow ups are important and typically take place two weeks later.
